crashumbc Re:Good for them (558 comments)

So close but no!

A tool is a "device or implement, especially one held in the hand, used to carry out a particular function"

Rite Aid and CVS Block Apple Pay and Google Wallet

crashumbc Re:Good for them (558 comments)

Well done! I figured you for a old 80 unix guy that hadn't even heard of Oculus Rift!

For 200 can say why someone wouldn't be wearing one in line to buy something?

One In Three Jobs Will Be Taken By Software Or Robots By 2025, Says Gartner

crashumbc Re:Maybe one day, but not by 2025 (405 comments)

Yeah, They'll start dribbling out in 5-8 years. The first serious roll-out will start around 10 years with 1/3 jobs replaced coming 20-30 years out. Its just a matter of sheer amount of robots that need to be built.

Anyone who doesn't think its going to happen is seriously deluding themselves. Pretty the only that can stop it is a global meltdown of modern civilization or earth destroying event (man made or otherwise).

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

yup, most of that crap started because of PVP... It is extremely difficult to make things different but equal.

vanilla was good

BC was awesome (probably the pinnacle) ( I remember spending a month and half learning how to properly gear and play my druid for tanking)

WotLK was still decent but the downward spiral had started, ALL classes using same gear,stats,cooldown dependent rotations, etc really started to show.

What the heck was next? I can't remember but it just generic, all thinking ceased. gear no longer mattered there was no thought needed, just can you watch which skill on cooldown you should hit next...

pfft doesn't matter

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

So if possible they made the game MORE nintendo like, removing any possibility of thought needed in gearing your character...

That answers my question about whether I'd ever want to go back :)

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

Did they change the basic game play?

I was a big fan of the 2-3 expansions. But the game became WAY too nitendo based for me. Literally all the classes had the same gameplay, nothing but watching multiple "cooldowns"

Inside the Facebook Algorithm Most Users Don't Even Know Exists

crashumbc Re:About Facebook (130 comments)

Exactly !

What's worse is I think they've started dicking around with "most recent" also :(

ALL I want is POSTS to appear in chronological order and ALL of them to appear. If I haven't unfriended them or muted them...

THEN I WANT TO SEE THEIR POSTS....

FB can't even do that right...
